Plan for Continued Development

Manufacturing

Costs and Use of Funds

The research and development, prototyping, sampling, marketing entrance, affiliation contacts and business development has been established. In order to enter the market strongly, the use of future funds will be as follows: manufacturing cost, distribution site development, marketing and marketing campaign, staff enhancement and ongoing operational costs. The cost of manufacturing is singled out as the largest cost factor. However, through diligently resourcing the most effective manufacturing facilities, worldwide, we can produce at effective costs, while maintaining a minimal 52% profit margin.Management and back-end office structure: accounting, bookkeeping, web development, e-commerce storefront (Website - www.dignitybydesign.com).

Intellectual Property

The Company is fully trademarked: Dignity by Design and DbD . Rigorous control of pattern development, ergonomics and grading of each design, render patterns un-copy-able to the general retail apparel industry. We have entered discussion on licensing the patterns to two retail markets. With current controls in place, it allows for Dignity by Design to maintain a minimal twelve month advantage to market entrance and customer loyalty, prior to the emergence of "copycat" marketing.

Marketing Strategy

The Current Market and Total Revenues: Unmet Market Need - 54 million Americans alone are estimated to have some form of disability that limits dexterity or dressing issues. The data is taken directly from the "American's with Disabilities Act of 2001". The apparel market is a $300 Billion revenue producing industry. The disabled market does not have a supplier for clothing that incorporates the accessibility plus the fashionable appearance desired by the working or socially active disabled. Our direct marketing research through trade shows and presentations with disabled organizations assures that this Company has the ability and tested products to meet this need - and fully capture this niche market.

An integrated web site storefront is fully in place: www.dignitybydesign.com

Major Retail Markets

Market placement as a specialty division within major retail markets: (spec. Target, Kohl's). Meetings have commenced with both organizations to date).This offering only becomes viable once market placement has been established by Dignity by Design as a premier player in the apparel industry, or a major manufacturer takes on this line as a subdivision.

Trade Shows (including, but not limited to: 3M Eldercare, Senior Expo, Abilities Expo, MS and Serono/Pfizer shows/speaker presentations, and Special Olympics) Note: Because of the exclusivity of our apparel, we have been invited, free of charge, to participate and present at most trade and disabled affiliate programs and trade shows. This company and its products are in great demand and we draw a tremendous crowd. If our line of apparel had been available for sale at previous events, our profitability in 2007 would have exceeded $500,000.00 in sales.

Marketing, Direct Marketing and Advertising

radio, television, cable, disabled publications, and long-term affiliations with established publications, promotional engagements, editorials and government agencies.

Disabled organizations and Veterans associations - including government and war veterans.

Risks and Potentials

The apparel industry indeed has its inherent risks - with manufacturing, textile fluctuation and import export limitations, however - this market is so immense that its risks are certainly less than those incurred by generic fashion lines, which remain quite profitable, yet cater to a far more limited clientele. This risk is also our opportunity - we enter as first to market and dominate the marketplace, therefore retail and global expansion looks to our expertise and product to partner with, expand and enter the disabled market...
